  1. I will be feeling happy to be up there clearly. My pre-season expectation was that we would regret appointing DH but he's done well so far. I don't have a feel though for how the season will go yet. I'm not sure saturday will change that if we squeak a 1-0 win thanks to Bentley keeping them out with a series of worldies. If we steam rollered them, won 3-0 and played like Brentford on a good day that could well change my opinion. I just feel like we are going to pick up injuries, Pato will go into a coma again and teams will have sussed us out and Deano struggle to find an answer. M
  2. My expectation pre-season was to finish on 60 pts or less. Which would be around 14 per 10 games. We are well ahead of that which is positive but I'm not gonna be surprised if things tail off rapidly. To me it feels a bit like the summer when the covid autumn second spike was inevitably looming on the horizon. Hope that's cheered you all up.
  3. Wasn't Robbie Cundy a CB we had out on loan too. Wonder if it might be possible to/worth a recall if Mawson is out long term.
  4. It will be very interesting to see what DH does for the next game. It's easy when you are winning as there is no real pressure to change anything. After two poor performances he is gonna start to show us whether he knows how to fix what obviously wasn't working last night. After the early rave reviews I was disappointed with Bakinson. However the whole team were poor and the passing was very sloppy. Not sure DH will drop either Pato or AW and if so the options to improve in midfield are very limited. When he subbed both strikers I could only imagine he doesn't rate the options in m
  5. Summed it up for me. Even when behind we were constantly playing the ball backwards. Holdenball was supposedly about attacking football - where was that tonight? What really gets to me is that as soon as we lose and the lack of quality in midfield becomes obvious we get multiple posts about Walsh and Williams being the answer. We'll see - Walsh certainly didn't look an answer in the games he played for us before his loan.
  6. Why change your 2 strikers when the ball is never getting up to them. No attack from midfield or the flanks is more the problem surely.
  7. If Vyner loses his marker from a corner and we concede again I suspect we will hear the alternative view on here.
  8. Don't think this squad is as good as some are claiming. We aren't a top two side so enjoy it while we're up there.
  9. There I was thinking you were a deep thinking, cultured football expert fevs.
  10. My dad took me to Coventry with a load of blokes from his factory. Sat on the floor in the back of a transit van up the motorway. I went with him in 'luxury' in one of the fleet of coaches to Highbury. Arsenal fans were spitting at us through the fencing. We got a brick thrown through the window by an irate home fan on the way home. Ah 70's football eh - still loved it.
  11. I completely agree - was at both games and still remember the feeling of elation. Would be nice for younger fans to get the same chance.
